Oh haii durr [Introduction]

Oh why hello there.
Rephase here, bringing you my VERY VERY first build on Malzahar.
Now!, Pleaseeeeeeeeee
Leave a comment before you say "This is trash, you suck,blah blah blah."
Start NAO!
I believe Malzahar is probably one of the BEST CS Farming in the game!
Because of this, You don't need to even TRY to get cs, now that doesn't mean that it will appear out of nowhere, but unlike other champions he doesn't need to be so aware of the low-hp minions.
Let's begin SHALL we.
AGAIN, please, please, please, read through the whole build, leave some feedback please.

What's GEWD/What's NOT.

WHATZ GEWD
[*] Amazing Damage
[*] Good AoE
[*] AoE Silence
[*] Take down the tanks ;D
[*] AMAZING FARMER
[*] Great Harass
[*] Very fast pusher
WHATZ NOT
[*] Squishy
[*] NO ESCAPE!
[*] Very fast pusher
[*] Focused first because of damage.


I put very fast pusher in both, because really, this can benefit you and **** you over ALOT!, Please, be careful.


Guide Top

What you want in those extra skills.

FLASH!
THIS ****, IS YOUR ONLY ****ING ESCAPE, KEEP THIS FOR RISKY SITUATIONS.
also, great for positioning kills!
Ignite
BIG BIG DAMAGE!
Ignite+Malefic Visions= OP!
Great for finishing off kills!
Teleport
I do not recommend this but it can be useful, since you are very squishy until about Level 7 Depending on your gameplay. You may need to B Recall ALOT! But other than that if you keep a passive gameplay you shouldn't need this at all.
Ghost
Also don't recommend but is also useful for positioning, running away and so on.
Clarity
THIS TO ME IS A BIG NONO! Malzahar does NOT need this at ALL. The only reason that this is on this list is for First Time Players. Other than that if you can farm and keep your E under control, you should not need this at all.


Guide Top

KILLING DEM OP MINIONS.

This is maybe the easiest thing for Malzahar, now while this may seem easy there are definitely some bad about farming, so I shall create YET another Pros/Cons or WhatsGEWD/WhatsNOT section.
[*]Super Fast Push
[*] Super Fast Push
That's ummm... Pretty much it xD.

WHATZ TO GET AT LEVAL 1.

Doran's Ring
This is what I like to call the SAFE
start. This give hp, minimizing some
of the squishy-ness that is Malz.
AMP TOME
This is for you daredevils out there.
this is the more risky start, and maximizes
damage, but of course dont forget those
two pots.

GET THISSS :3

Rabadon's Deathcap
THIS?! THIS!? GET THIS OR DIE!!!
'Noufff said <_<
Rod Of Ages
Since this is a [AP/Survivability] Build
This is also a big must. Unless you wanna eat ****.
Ludicity Boots
Since I also play Malz, with 40% CDR.
You can take this and get that.
Morello's Evil Tome
This is again with the 40% CDR, It is also a nice
amount of AP that is given.


Guide Top

LEVAL 1 MID! [or lane]

ALWAYS Try taking mid.
When you are level one, and that little announcer lady says that the OP Minions have spawned.
You shall choose your Q. NOW There are two ways you can use this Q.
[*] The first and maybe obvious way is to use this Q, to farm, the fourth time you might want to keep the voidling until you get your E.
[*] The second choice is HARRASSSSS!11!!11! This is my personal favorite choice, but of course it all depends on who you are laning or miding against. With this you can take these two paths. CHOOSE WISELY YOUNG ONE


Guide Top

MID GAME AND LATE GAME.

Around 7-10 You should have Catalyst OR Ludicity Boots.
If you are more than fed or have enough
a Rod Of Ages and/or a Needlessly large rod .
11-18
By now you should have a nice amount of AP, taking down dem op tanks and ap carries.
try to ALWAYS have Blue buff AND also assist your team greatly, don't go too far, since you are like a freshly baked cake and die in like two hits because of your ten armor.
